UNIT II COURSE PROJECT 2Section IThe fire protection, detection, and suppression systems that were in place at the Washington Distribution Warehouse might have been sufficient in a warehouse that did not store similar type items. The warehouse management should have called the local fire department to conduct an inspection of the fire protection, detection, and suppression systems prior to the remodeling to ensure that they were going to perform correctly in the event of a fire. Once the company begins to rebuild the warehouse I would recommend to start the design around the fire protection, detection, and suppression systems. This would help to identify design flaws in both the fire protection system as well as the layout of the building. My first recommended piece of equipment would be a diesel driven fire pump with battery power. This would eliminate the need for an electrical power source to run it. I would also recommend both an automatic fire protection, detection, and alarm system as well as automatic fire suppression systems. The use of automatic alarm systems in all the areas will eliminate the need for someone to actually call the fire department.
